XM177E2 Moderator Flash Hider

Manufacturer

Colt

This early flash hider for 5.56x45mm caliber weapons effectively reduces muzzle flash, improving shooter visibility and reducing the risk of giving away their position in low-light conditions. Originally manufactured by Colt in early 1967, this particular model was consistently utilized on the XM177E2. However, production of the Moderators by Colt ceased in the mid-1970s, following a ruling by the ATF categorizing the device as a sound “suppressor.”
